Whether working at a desk, performing household tasks, lifting a child or playing a sport, you may have experienced aches, pains or stiffness associated with such tasks. While these activities may seem harmless, they can actually result in injury due to imbalances in the body, abnormal movement or stress/strain on muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.
Throughout the day, the body experiences repetitive stress to its muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments that lead to micro-traumas in the body, resulting in swelling, inflammation, soreness and pain. Over time, repetitive stress can lead to tears in the tissue and injury, which may sideline you from completing your work, hobbies, playing sports or completing life’s tasks.
Though soft tissue injuries cannot always be prevented, taking a proactive stance will reduce your risk of injury and keep you feeling stronger and energized by allowing your body to move freely. At Aspire Health & Wellness, Dr. Boaz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, can help prevent and reduce the risk of injuries by addressing your minor aches and pains before they develop into injuries as well as designing a personalized preventative treatment plan to correct imbalances or movement flaws that occur in everyday activities.
